When I meet a solo woman traveler, I would usually ask her,
"What has been your most creepiest encounter from men?"
I am curious.
Here are their stories:
Woman #1: A 67-year-old man in my hostel's mixed dorm room told me, "I see your toes wiggling, when you lay down on your bed. That is a sign of giving birth."
Woman #2: I was traveling alone for the first time ever in Rome. This was 5 years ago. I was walking alone late at night. Suddenly, a motorcycle was trailing me. He was following me for the last 20 minutes or so. I was afraid. He stopped, and whipped his penis at me. I ran away from him. Luckily, I found an open bar for the meantime. I was able to use their phone. My friend picked me up from the bar.
Woman #3: From Couchsurfing, I hosted a man. He was super shy and quiet on the first day. On the next day, we were reading a book together. He came closer to me. He went for the kiss. I was surprised. I pulled away. He was upset. Thus, he left my cat door open. He wanted my cat to escape from my house.
Woman #4: He expressed his feelings to me. I told him, "Sorry, I am not into you like that." He was upset. He left me. Then, he stalked me by moving closer to me from where I was staying at.
When I was a kid, I never talked to girls. I was timid to even approach them. I always wished that they were going to approach me, but it never happened.
I used to be extremely upset, if a woman rejected me.
Now, I approach women in a friendly, respectfully way. If a woman rejects me, I would listen to her.
Respect the lady.
